Pressure and temperature instruments for industrial process equipment
Pressure and temperature instruments play a critical role in a wide range of process equipment, including, but not limited to, boilers, compressors, engines, and turbines. The measurement and monitoring technologies help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) ensure that their OEM process systems run at optimal levels, resulting in greater efficiency, safety, and compliance with regulatory standards. However, they must offer accurate and reliable performance in extreme conditions (e.g., extended exposure to fluctuating temperatures, extreme vibrations, and abrasive compounds or extended pressure and temperature cycle life expectations) and comply with industry and regulatory standards. Otherwise, they may fail to operate as needed.
At Ashcroft, our measuring and monitoring solutions find application in a variety of OEM process equipment, including:
Instruments for monitoring and controlling fuel pressure, water level and steam pressure and temperature control and safety shutdown, exhaust pressure and temperature monitoring
Instruments for inlet / outlet pressure and temperature monitoring, control and diagnostics for operating efficiency
Instruments for pressure and temperature monitoring, control and safety shutdown relating to fuel, oil, coolant and exhaust
Instruments for monitoring and controlling fuel pressure and exhaust temperature, including safety shutdown
Importance of Measurement and Monitoring Technology for Process Equipment Manufacturers
At Ashcroft, we design and manufacture high-quality pressure and temperature control instruments for industrial process equipment. Our experts are ready and willing to help OEMs determine which instrumentation solution will satisfy your and your customers’ need for safe and efficient equipment. Our customer-focused approach enables us to combine our extensive instrumentation experience with your knowledge of your application requirements to create process equipment that achieves greater productivity and profitability levels.
Some examples of our instrument solutions include:
SIL-rated pressure switches for boiler safety shutdown
Natural gas high pressure compressor inlet/discharge pressure instruments for monitoring diagnostic input and maintaining operating efficiency
Our measurement and monitoring solutions are intended to meet and exceed application requirements, improving the overall performance and life expectancy of the equipment. Some of the benefits of integrating our pressure and temperature instruments into OEM process equipment include:
Better compliance with industry/regulatory standards
The critical nature of process equipment and its wide range of applications make it subject to numerous industry and regulatory standards. Our instruments help you keep your equipment consistent with the most stringent guidelines. For example, our switches comply with global safety, hazardous area, and safety integrity level (SIL) standards.
Greater process optimization
Pressure and temperature sensors, switches, and gauges allow users to monitor various operating conditions (e.g., pressure, temperature, flow, etc.) within equipment to ensure they reach and remain at optimal levels.
Higher cost savings
By increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of process equipment, our instruments allow OEMs to save on operational and maintenance costs. As a result, your customers benefit from increased productivity and profitability.
